Over The River Arranged by John Moss. For Concert Band. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 08725134, UPC: 884088157791)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **
Key: Bb - Meter: 4/4
Rhythms: 8th note/8th rest patterns, quarter-8th-quarter syncopation
Teaching Concepts: style, articulations, slur vs tongue, accidentals, D.S. al Coda

Light and festive with great harmonies (think Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride) this fresh rendition of Over the River will be a perfect opener to your middle school holiday concert.  The various rhythmic patterns and the number of accidentals will push your students, but the end result will be well worth the work.  Plenty of interesting percussion parts including sleigh bells, slapstick, and woodblocks will make it a "hit" with your drummers, too!
